Double Wreaths


Several days ago Annie mentioned that it would be interesting to find wreaths in unlikely places. Well, this isn't one of those sites, but it's an attractive display by the homeowner.

Today in Minnesota history: 1941 - Outside of Pearl Harbor, the destroyer Ward, its crew primarily reservists from St. Paul, attacks and sinks a Japanese midget submarine, the first shots fired on the date of infamy. Inside the harbor, Minneapolis-born Captain Franklin van Valkenburgh is killed on the bridge of his ship, the USS Arizona. He would be awarded the Medal of Honor by Congress. (Reference: MSHS.ORG)

  1. It is a little bit unusual, two wreaths neither of which are on the gate doors. Nice, very nice, I think.

  4. c'est marrant, les couleurs de ces couronnes, me font plus penser a des couronnes mortuaires, qu'a des couronnes de la fete de noel.
    Etrange choix


    it is funny, the colors of these crowns, make me more think has funeral wreathes, which has of the crowns of the festival of Christmas. Strange choice
